JCI is one of the organization’s way to help educate both the Palestinian children and adults to learn English. Located in the Gaza Refugee Camp, this vision started as an initiative from the members of JCI Jordan. The objective was to help less fortunate students in the camp by teaching English summer courses. Once a week, for a few hours, class is held for both age groups. Their vision is to make this initiative a continuous project throughout the year and for many years to come.
Athena volunteered here while in Jordan. She was able to see the poverty and struggles of the Palestinian people first hand. It’s a shame that so many innocent beings suffer due to the inhumane behavior of their people. We realize, this will always be a battle, but through love and education, change can be made.
